Why do we teach? We seem to forget why we do what we do to begin with. “What is our deepest intention?”

Humans are instinctively curious beings. We want to explore the world around us. There is a deep longing to understand the unknown. We want to answer the “why” of life’s lessons, while also addressing the what and the how. There is an energy that flows within us to gravitate toward self discovery.

I am passionate about people’s stories. I want to help my students develop their stories. I want my students to want to learn. Education is about liberty, and setting students free.
